TARDIS and the Professor! LA quest review

Yo, Smart n Heroic back and...

TARDIS, right! Time and Relative Dimension in Space! The time machine ship that takes you anywhere and anytime to anyone and anything! I remember reading Duncan Daystone's post, that there was a TARDIS in MB and a Professor, but this was in test realm. (But it suppposed to be a phone booth because they are found in London, etc.) And I remembered that ZF was live and that feature comenced. So I told Victoria right away, and she got on immediately. Now I wonder why KI added this. And I was so excited and shaking in awe because of this mystery "box".

TARDIS and the Professor in the scene. First off, TARDIS  is supposed to be blue. But to avoid copyright issues, KI rendered it red. As well as having it "telegraph" than "police box", the Professor being that rather than the Doctor, Red Converse than old, fine shoes, the bowtie than a tie, (bowties are cool), and the couple squares down the booth are merged into rectangles, and if you look closely enough on that piece of paper in the TARDIS aka phone booth...it says...




Then Victoria got on. :D
For some reason, this level 0 popped up three times. Pretty sure it's a glitch.
Wow, Doc---, I mean Prof! Nice Converse shoes! I have the same ones! (This was supposedly the 4th  Doctor, but to, again, avoid copyright issues, KI added Converse Shoes, which David Tennant, 10th Doctor.)

I noticed that when you look closely, he's wearing spectacles, or glasses. Look very closely. Also, Victoria checked if I wasn't hallucinating. I wasn't thankfully.

Heroic Picture of the Day: Victoria and I posing like the Professor, or at least trying to...

Anyway, I found the Legendary Artisan quest is quite challenging. I have a feeling it will take a while to complete it. You need two Spirit Caller Drums, which consists of a total of...
  • 8 Legion Shield Treasure Cards
  • 4 Perfect Onyx
  • 4 Pristine Vial
  • 18 Sunstone
  • 28 Black Pearl
  • 16 Golden Pearl
  • 4 Conga Drums
  • 26 Aether
Conga Drums is a furniture crafting item recipe found in Celestia Base Camp. Vendor is "Gearwise", and you need FOUR of them, which consists a total of...
  • 8 Giant Treasure Cards
  • 4 Amethyst
  • 4 Crystal Vial
  • 16 Scales
  • 16 Aether
  • 32 Shell
  • 64 Fossil
Thanks to Diana Wildheart, I found out that Aether can be dropped by Deadly Helephant Ears harvests. I bought a lot of transmutes to transmute to another transmute. Aether is seen in both Sprit Caller and Congo Durm, which will spice the search for it. And those Golden Pearls were a torture from last crafting quest back in Floating Land. Yet you need 16 of them this time! So 1 Golden Pearl is equivalent to 15 Pearls. You can get Pearls in the Portico, but 1 Pearl is equivalent to 10 Black Lotus. Sure you can sit and snipe at the Bazaar for Pearls, GP, and BL, but I found a spawing field of Black Lotus...in Vestrilund, in the middle of Vestrilund.

See how much Black Lotus I have gotten.

I continued to realm jump and realm jump, until I found one in out of many Black Lotuses, a Black Pearl.

There are about a total of 5 of these in a realm spawn. Each of the Black Lotus gives a range of 1-3 of them.
Now since, you know this, I hope I won't be seeing you guys trying to steal my Black Lotus that I'm hunting down...
A quick rundown of transmutes here, which are necessary in creating a Congo Drum and Spirit Caller Drum... Although, you can still snipe them at the Bazaar and/or realm jump to obtain it.

-1 Golden Pearl = 15 Pearls
-1 Pearl = 10 Black Lotus
-1 Black Lotus = 10 Mist Wood and 10 Ore
-1 Aether = 15 Kelp
-1 Kelp = 10 Mandrakes
-1 Mandrake = 10 Mist Wood and 10 Deep Mushroom
-1 Sunstone = 15 Sandstones
-1 Sandstone = 10 Stone blocks
-1 Fossil = 15 Stone blocks
-1 Black Pearl = 15 Black Lotus

Hope you all had a brilliant Thanksgiving!

"Victoria, do we timelords celebrate Thanksgiving?"
"Eh, I'm just with you for the food."
"Well as long you're happy, I'm happy!"

Yes, yes, everyone now knows about Zafaria


Victoria likes explosions.

Now what kind of explosives does she like?

Tnt, mushroom clouds, bazooka, inflammable hazardous materials....

But we're talking about the Zafaria leak and details. My, my, now why is it called Saf-, I mean Zafaria. Well, it does sound like safari, so it most likely will be a safari setting, or at least most of the world. KI dropped Sir Reginald Baxby back in Golem Court just wielding that musket over his shoulder. He looks like he could be on a safari mission. Let's hope he'll appear. But why is there is a "Z" in it Zafaria? Is it because "zebras" are on the good side and/or inhabits this world? Let's see what KI has in store for us...

I forgot, There IS new gear, pets, mounts, and level cap of 70. Wonder what the title for that will be.

I'll soon be calling those of you who are level 60 to come to my office in the Commons as soon as you can! We have a small crisis which I hope you can help with. It involves travel to the world of Zafaria. I was there, long ago...

..but beware, while it is a lush and vibrant land, Zafaria was once the home of Morganthe and even still her agents sow the seeds of chaos. As war threatens to sweep over the grasslands and penetrate deep into the jungles of Zafaria, Morganthe plots to recover the heart of her lost power, and fulfill the words of the prophecy.


Ah, we a see a zebra in battle, a gorilla guard, tent, safai colony, and a depth-within-bridge.
It also says that it is Morganthe's home world, as well as Merle has been to Zafarica before... Merle and Morgan (le Fay) prophecy coming true?

Demons guarding their fortress.

This looks very similar to the Sun Palace, which comes with the Super Bundle, but more desolated and less lively.


New spells!

Fire: Volcano
         Oh, I love how the  platypi are rotating around their campfire then it enlarges, blowing the playtpi off the ground. The ground enlarges and forms a mountain top, and the top erupts flowing lava with it.

Ice:  Wolly Ice Mammoth
         A stampede of minion mammoths scramble around for the chief massive mammoth to come out.

Storm: Frankenstein
            Katzenstein attempts to pull down the lever and grunts as the Tesla coils surge and bring Frank alive. Frankenstein contacts the coils to absorb the energy to eradicate you into oblivion.

Myth: Earth Dragon
           A teal wyvern crawls from the earth beneath and wraps around to settle to find it's prey.
           **EDIT It is a basilisk. EDIT**

Life: Giant Gnome
         Little miniature gnomes gather to construct a gargantuan sole "goliath" gnome.
Death: not shown

Balance: Chimera
                A three headed creature lurks from the ground, rising above and lands with a heavy stomp. Madness in it's eyes, hurling locust to they enemy, hitting three times.

Now, obviously these might be wrong. Afterall, they are my opinions. Have fun making your own predictions though.

I'm pretty sure this guy is a boss, if not a simple npc. But then again, oni's here in Zafracia aren't nice and friendly...

KI just had to sneak in a peak at what she is doing just like how Malistaire appeared in Big Ben with Meowiarty. How devious...




  • thumb_Picture_2011-10-18_16-04-26Baobab, the market Hub of Zafaria.
  • The Savannah, with its open grasslands and hidden dens.
  • Zamuda, the great wooden city of the Zebra Empire
  • Stone Town, capital of the Elephant Nation
  • Drum Jungle, where twisted ruins hide beneath the lush canopy.    
Oh, so we get to talk to zebras, cheers. Baobab will be our market/commons.


Are the... waltzing?

Grub Guardian
Apparently, this is new game called "Grub Guardian". It can be played on the web AND Android and iOS mobile devices. We can use our pets in-game pets and link to our own accounts. So that means we can play this anywhere while you have your pets with you! Brilliant!


Blown away? I can't wait. Nor can anyone else. Test realm might hit around mid-Nov, and from KI, we receive Zafarica for our Christmas presents. :DDD

See you in the Spiral!-Thunderblade

I never knew that...

...the female Guardian robe looked so lovely.

...Sylster had a minor cousin.
...the Night wyvern looks cool at Nighside.

...wyverns could float in a red highlight underwater.

...broomsticks kicking stances just looks sweet.
 ...utility dragons have really epic stats and high pedigree.

...the balance house interior was so grand and colossal.

...Autumn Dreamwalker had a storage of housing items at her MFP.

Oh look at the time! Got to go to bed! I'm late, I'm late!

See you in the Spiral!-Thunderblade

Not another one...

The Nightmare Pack

Our lowest price pack ever, just in time for Halloween!

Available for a limited time only!

The Nightmare is here, and the haunting Dark Wraith gear will have your Wizard eerily glowing through the Spiral. Full of Halloween pets and Halloween fun - the Nightmare Pack is ready for this spooky season! Check it out in the Crown Shop.


Sighs... Not another one... Why? Why?! Well, at least it 's 100 crowns less. I will be spending just a little. I must say, I have to stay strong,  and suck up the fact that, you get what you get. The Nightmare mount looks like a skeletalized Pegasus, as well as the Bone dragon, which was skinned from a Wyvern. I really like the robe that the pack offers though. I love the spooky eyes. In fact, it is like a human ianthine spectre!
 for my killer spectre pet!

Let's see what I received...

-Treasure Cards: Death Bat, Life Bat, Life Banshee, Red Banshee, Crow, Lady Blackhope, Black Widow
-Pets: 2 Golden Armored Skeleton, Lightning Bat, Grim, Scarab, Life Ghoul, Red Ghost, 2 Ianthine Spectre, Ghost Hound
-Gear: Halloween shoes,
-Miscallaneous: Pet snacks galore, reagents, uselss housing items, other useless treasure cards
-Mounts: Bat wings (permamant), 10 other 1-day mounts, and The Nightmare

Yes, I did get the mount. But only because I spent 10,000 crowns on this stupid pack, which is approxiametly 38 packs. I am now (almost) statisfied and now can stop. I said almost because I need the stupid staff. Victoria Spiritblossom actually has that staff. Lucky. I'd also would really like the Tapestry to Nightside. But, I will resist myself and not buy it even though it looks wicked cool.
Ghost hound!

I feel like the Friendly Necromancer. Note: I got this from the pack.
Wow, Grim Scarab and Red Ghost. That's a lot of gold in pet hatching.
Hat. If only it had health.

An overview.

Ianthine Spectre. Worth a lot of crowns.
That does look pretty epic.

Glitch, I was setting the ianthine spectre down, and it enlarged

I really like this outift.
Golden Armored Skeleton.

Yes, there, I have it, guilty.
I will name thee "Phantom"
Overview, again.

Higher of the Ground.

Overall, I have spent enough... But I really want the staff and tapestry :(. Oh, and if you haven't noticed, I received the mount on my storm wizard. I hopped on one character to another if my chance/luck differs, which it did. I got really good things from my death wizard: pets and permanant wings. I really hope that KI does not throw in another pack. I am guessing that the Gob-o-Lantern is extremely rare because no one I know has it as of now.

I see that the gear for Dragon's Hoard was generic and the housing was an overdose. The Wyvern Hoard was pet/gardening gear with way too many trees and seeds. But the Nightmare Hoard... There was not that many housing items, death gear with no health, sweet death pets, and a ton of random snacks. What can we expect the next time?

Other than that, the test realm is now live! Black Panther, Sunken Palace addtion, and housing signs! I'm pretty sure the next world will be out on December. There is a new bundle. It is actually Nick Lionrider's Zebrifica idea. There's a colossal rhino mount called Hornosaurus, which is a two passenger mount witha Giraffe pet, as well as a genie "Gorilla" that gives you something a day, which is in the massive house. (Gear included.) It is $39. And there's a Raven Bundle that will be released at Walmart including a gigantic Falcon mount, Night Hawk pet, and a gear. There is no house for this so it is $29.

Credit goes to Swordroll.
I got to return back to school, so bye for now! (Try to) Have fun with those packs!
